After my last adventure with t-shirts, I wanted to make use of hardly worn t-shirts. Then came the idea of turning it in to little girls summer dress. That’s when I remembered this post from craftygemini. In her tutorial, Venessa used knit fabrics. I used t-shirts instead. It came out very well. My daughter (3yr old) never wears the dresses I sew. She likes only knits. She wore this dress for 2 days straight, until some juice spill on it :-)).
Here she is in her new avatar!!!!!!
A tip while sewing with knits: Use a leader cloth in front of your knit fabric being sewn. That helps to avoid the feed dogs from eating your fabric!!!!!!
I also made some pouches, pouches and pouches :-D.
When I was in college I used to carry a leather purse with 2 zippers. It was very convenient to keep pens/pencils and money separate. I always wanted to make some on my own. Last week, I stumbled across this youtube channel by Japanese Sewing Books YouTube channel and found a direct and simple way of making the same exact pouch I used to have. Right away I started with it.
Only changes I made were adding interfacing to the main fabric and playing with zipper lengths. The pouch gets some body with one interfacing to the outermost piece. But then my daughter wanted a pouch for herself. She came with a material of her choice and we ended up with this nice pencil pouch :-).
That’s all for this week. Hope you had some fun sewing too. THANK YOU for stopping by. Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!
See you with my next post. Until then be Happy 🙂
